4.0 out of 5 stars Brings out the depth and sincerity of the music, 26 Jun. 2012
This review is from: Early Takes Volume 1 (Audio CD)
George Harrison's solo work around the time of 'All Things Must Pass' was brilliant, but he himself said in later years that he felt his famous triple album was over-produced. Well, here's the antidote - a short collection of songs in demo or early form that show the underlying beauty of the material he was producing at the time.

I thought, when I received this, that it would be an album of interest to completists only but unlikely to be played repeatedly for its own merits. That is wrong. This album is well worth listening to as a free-standing release in its own right.

The analogy I would draw is with the the acoustic version of 'While My Guitar Gently Weeps' on the Beatles Anthology. That song is achingly beautiful in its reduced-production form and the same is true of much of this album.

This album brings out the depth and sincerity of Harrison's words as well as the music and is well worth listening to for those values. A bit short but well worth owning. Four stars.
